The Topic Women Don’t Want To Talk About

Hair loss and thinning may be a topic that no woman wants to talk about, however, it’s one that affects 30 million women in the United States, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, and can cause emotional and physical distress. If you’ve been noticing more hairs on your pillow or hairbrush than normal, you may worry that you have hair loss. You could actually just be shedding more hairs than normal. Yes, there is a difference!

We normally to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day. When the body sheds significantly more hairs every day, a person has excessive hair shedding and this is called Telogen Effluvium. Hair loss differs from hair shedding Hair loss occurs when something stops the hair from growing and this is called Anagen Effluvium.

What You Can Do Now:

  • Diet is an extremely important factor in hair growth! Protein and Vitamin D are critical for the body to produce and grow hair.
  • Wearing your hair in ponytails too often is a no-no! Ponytails cause tension, tension causes breakage, and breakage causes hair loss. Try to limit your ponytail styles to a couple times a week and use a soft cloth, clasp-free hair band. If you must wear it up often for exercise, do a loose topknot for less tension.
  • Not cleaning the vent in your blow dryer is a rarely discussed subject with your professional stylist, but very important for your dryer’s productivity. When the vent is clogged with dust and hair the air circulation is depleted. Your dryer will still blow air, but not effectively dry your hair. And in some cases, may damage and cause breakage! Or worse, snap and pop and burn the hair.
  • Trimming the hair has nothing to do with the hair itself growing. BUT, it does have EVERYTHING to do with the ends of the hair not splitting and breaking off. When the ends of the hair are properly maintained, the growth of hair is maintained.
